Music representing the moods of the four seasons has always been popular and many composers have produced cycles of concertos representing the seasons. But none were to do so in such precise detail as Antonio Vivaldi, who used four sonnets of his own creation as a descriptive base for his beloved masterpiece. During this unique program, we will explore and illustrate each season following the sonnets and music together, providing a fun and educational prospective culminating in a virtuosic performance. The guest soloist will be violinist Keila Wakao.

Fast-paced, interactive, and hilarious… he’s “magic’s punk rock Peter Pan philosopher.” Mario has appeared on Sesame Street, NBC’s Universal Kids, and even live on tour with David Blaine, who calls him “the best kids magician in the world!!” Come see why!
From the moment that Debbie and Friends launch into the original song, “I’m Glad You’re Here,” the children in the crowd understand their role: to jump up and down participate. As the lyrics suggest, “You’re part of the show.” From that high-energy opener to the ecstatic ending, the pacing of a Debbie and Friends show perfectly aligns with the attention spans of their audience. They’ll rock out and get the kids dancing in a theatre-sized conga line, and then they’ll bring them down gently to relax and engage in more attentive ways. Drawing heavily from fairytales that kids will already be familiar with, Debbie presents enough lyrical updates to keep these stories fresh, and to keep everybody tuned in and laughing, including the parents!
